Mary’s Meals is a Scotland-based charity that provides life-changing meals to some of the world’s poorest children every day that they attend school. We have supported them with donations and help with more specific appeals.
In 2015 we supported Mary’s Meals’s appeal to provide filled rucksacks so that some of the world’s poorest children could go to school with not only a bag but with items that would help them learn, such as stationery. With the help of some of our children’s and youth groups, such as Brownies, we collected an amazing 243 filled rucksacks. Here are the Mary’s Meals team collecting them, with Liz Blair who coordinated the project.
